Nexus S now available for pre-order in the UK

Just three days after being officially unveiled by Google, the Samsung Nexus S is now officially available for pre-order via UK mobile phone retailer and operator the Carphone Warehouse.

The Nexus S will be the first smartphone on the market that will ship with Google’s latest Android 2.3 firmware, codenamed Gingerbread. The device will set back customers £549.95 for an unlocked or Pay As You Go handset, with the device being offered for free on contracts costing £35 or upwards.

The upside for UK customers is that the Nexus S is available for free on all of the main mobile operators, all of which have very similar deals, except T-Mobile which will charge £49 for the handset.

The Carphone Warehouse website describes the Nexus S, noting it features a “stunning 4-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen, curved to fit the contours of your hand and face”, a “speedy 1GHz processor and dedicated GPU for fluid gaming, video streaming and web browsing” and of course Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) software.
